Ind. Law - Indianapolis attorney Stephen Terrell featured in Muncie story
John Carlson of the Star-Press interviewed Terrell for this long story at The Cup:
... in Ball State University’s Village, two trade paperback books resting on the table before him. The son of a factory worker and a school lunchroom employee, he was ultimately drawn to the law after sitting in on the trial of a man who was accused of killing a close friend of his.
“Seeing that just solidified my plans,” said Terrell, who practices in Indianapolis and has argued cases in high courts there and in Chicago.
How long has he practiced law?
“Too long is my common answer,” he said, smiling, before specifying 33 years, time divided between working for a large firm, a smaller firm and then striking out on his own. “I’ve been really involved with the state bar association.” * * *
“Like most trial lawyers, I’m a story teller,” said the attorney, a fan of the Midwest Writers Workshops that are held in Muncie, an association that has stood him in good stead in his literary career.
“I started writing when I was in elementary school,” said Terrell, who is now working on a sequel to “Stars Fall,” which features a black, female, breast-cancer survivor as a protagonist, noting that he wrote a 150-page novel back when he was a Bearcat.
